Minority students now represent 12.1 percent of the student population, and the number of credit hours is up 8.4 percent.

"The campus continues to meet the needs of the students in our service region, as they choose to earn an Indiana University degree on the Kokomo campus," said Interim Chancellor Susan Sciame-Giesecke.

Many students are attracted to the new degree programs added during the past two years, including health sciences, hospitality and tourism, and the graduate degree in nursing.

As the campus grows, the Main Building is set for renovations to begin this year, with $14 million in funding from the state legislature. Plans include adding new classrooms, a math lab, and a Mac lab, among other projects.

The Milt and Jean Cole Family Wellness and Fitness Center, which opened in August, offers a place for students to exercise between classes. The fitness center includes a walking track, cardio training, group fitness classes, and weight lifting. In addition, the Cougar Gym in downtown Kokomo enhances student engagement with women's volleyball and men's basketball. Athletics will add women's basketball in 2014 and men's and women's golf in 2015-16.
